With the arrival of MacOS Monterey to the public, many news that had not been disclosed by Apple are being discovered by users. The operating system has a "high power mode" in beta that can optimize the performance of the 16 MacBook Pro Inches with M1 Max processor, further increasing the power of the processor.

When being questioned, Apple has confirmed that high power mode is in plans to reach all users soon. The company did not disclose how much would be the increase in performance of the MacBook Pro with M1 Max.


In the past, Apple had occasional problems with Intel processor thermal throttling when users tried to trigger modes such as overclocking, for example. According to Apple, the new M1 Max have a thermal technology that ensures the processors operate at high performance for a long time.
